    This is a wonderful, gentle easy way to wake on a Monday morning. You have a good eye Glo!
    The flowers are breathtaking.

    My husband and I watched a baby sparrow venture out with mum, taking its first flaps very gingerly! Luckily there was plenty of food on the tree so the exhausting first trip was fruitful! or fattyballful! :o)

  2. What a wonderful selection of photos!
    Daffy started her day with them and I'm ending mine likewise.
    I love the yellow rose and blue hydrangea.
    If I'm not mistaken the aircraft is a Gulfstream I which is a type that is rarely seen over here.
    I shall have another look here in the morning when I'm not quite so droopy eyed! xx

  3. Hello Daffy! No idea why your comment might have disappeared...but glad you tried again :)

    So is Loofah a real word for lupin or just a made up one? I thought a loofah was one of those hard spongy things for using on hardened skin???

    So happy you my flowers greeted your morning :)

    Awww...how sweet to have your very own Springwatch and see a baby sparrow take his first flaps ... lovely :) I am still waiting to see what Mr. and Mrs. Nuthatch have been up to in the birdhouse. They're still flitting about and I think I've heard baby birds ...hopefully I'll see one soon :)

  5. Hi Flighty :)
    Thanks...I'm pleased to hear that the flowers lasted throughout the day ...
    The yellow rose bush has a lot of buds, and my photo shows the second one to bloom, and the hydrangea flower is the first to bloom this year.

    Interesting about the plane! When I took a closer look,I noticed a fish logo on the tail. At first I thought it might be an orca, as we do have Orca Airways in the vicinity, but after checking their website, it seems they have 7 Navajo Chieftains in their fleet. Perhaps you can shed more light on it in the morning...

  6. We have lots of lovely honeysuckle in the garden at the moment. I only discovered the other day when an ex work colleague came around that she is allergic to it. She wasn't kidding, she suddenly became very nasally and was in need of a tissue. x

  7. Hi Louise ~ The honeysuckle is growing in profusion now here too, so your poor friend must be having an awful time. There is much complaint against the broom that grows here too from those who suffer from allergies. Thanks for dropping by :)
